“This is an amazing honor for the EPLWA and a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our eight clubs around the Evergreen State,” said Washington State Adult Soccer Association President and EPLWA Vice-President of Competitions Tim Busch. The award was granted to the league after only three weeks of play. Many state associations and leagues around the US are following the success of the EPLWA in its inaugural season.

“The designation brings the national spotlight to Washington State and to about 200 of its top amateur players who compete in our league,” says EPLWA President Peter Ostrovsky. “It’s well deserved recognition for the hard work that they put in on the pitch and the high standard that they hold themselves to.”

“We have received contacts from other states, even as far away as Louisiana, asking us how we got the EPLWA started and wanting to share ideas and learn from our early experiences,” says one of the league founders, David Falk. “We are excited that the USASA has granted us elite status in the Premier League – Elite Amateur Leagues designation. This honor puts us right alongside national leagues and gives us further inspiration to make the EPLWA the best it can be.”

During its debut month the Evergreen Premier League has produced stellar play, exciting, close matches, laid the foundation for supporters culture and drawn crowds similar or ever larger than those for other elite adult leagues around the country. The EPLWA’s fast-track to this honor also includes a nod to the league’s communications, promotion and social media work, some of the best in USA soccer at this level.
